    If you’re planning to watch the Super Bowl but you can’t stand the NFL take-a-knee protests, you may want to root for the Philadelphia Eagles. Not a single Eagles player sat or knelt during the national anthem, one of just seven teams with perfect non-kneeling records, in a season that saw 684 such incidents, according to a study released Thursday by Sports Pundit. The other Super Bowl LII team, the New England Patriots, landed in the middle of the pack with 17 incidents of anthem sitting or kneeling, wedged between the Buffalo Bills with 16 and the Cleveland Browns with...

    Speaking on the decision of the Cleveland Indians to no longer make use of the mascot Chief Wahoo as their uniform logo from 2019 onwards, co-host of ESPN’s “First Take” Max Kellerman argued on Tuesday that the University of Notre Dame should also be among those sports teams that take note of the offense caused by their mascot and make move to change it. […] As well as wholeheartedly standing behind the decision of the Cleveland Indians, Kellerman next went one step further, drawing in the Notre Dame name as an example of another sports franchise that should show the...

    Major League Baseball says the Cleveland Indians will stop using the Chief Wahoo logo on their uniforms starting in the 2019 season. The league says the logo, which features a smiling Native American, is not appropriate for field use. It has had discussions with the Indians in hopes that the franchise move away from the logo, which had been used in some capacity for the franchise since the 1947 season and was still prevalent on the team's baseball caps and on its uniforms. "Major League Baseball is committed to building a culture of diversity and inclusion throughout the game,” MLB...

    His former team is a laughingstock — to its own fans’ admission — and he now can see the route to another team. It was a good weekend for Johnny Manziel. On Sunday, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced they had begun negotiations with the NFL flameout, which included the Canadian Football League squad making him an offer. Manziel has not commented directly on negotiations, but he did have some words for the 0-16 Browns. Manziel got in a dig at his former employers early Sunday morning, a day after Cleveland fans mock-celebrated the Imperfect Season with a parade. “0-16szn,” Manziel first...

    The obituary published in the Sandusky Register says Paul Stark, of Huron, died Wednesday at a hospice facility after a brief illness "exacerbated by the hopeless condition of the Cleveland Browns." The football team was 1-15 last season and 0-15 this year ahead of Sunday's finale at Pittsburgh. Even so, Stark's obituary included a nugget of the optimism voiced by some long-suffering fans. It says the 80-year-old Mansfield native "passed just before the Browns were prepared to turn the corner."
  • How the Browns sealed their 0-16 season with a heartbreaking loss to the Steelers

    SB Nation ^ | December 31, 2017 | Harry Lyles Jr.
    The Browns secured their 0-16 season after losing to a Pittsburgh Steelers team that featured mostly backups on the road. The Browns had their chances at avoiding the wrong type of perfection, and just fell short in a 28-24 loss. As only the Browns could, the game was filled with highs and lows. Of course, as most Browns games do, it ended with a low so deep that you could only feel bad for the Browns. Their first possession was a disaster. I suppose things could have been worse, like throwing a pick-six on the first play or fumbling it...

    The NFL is experiencing an unprecedented backlash as players kneel during the National Anthem. The boycott is so bad that the Cleveland Browns, which gives away prizes to fans during games, selected an empty seat for a giveaway. [Snip] It is not known what the prize was, but whatever it was, it’s quite sad the team has resorted to keeping fans happy at FirstEnergy stadium with giveaways. What's even more sad is that the seat was empty. Several NFL stadiums are nearly empty post kick-off as the National Anthem controversy rolls into week 7. The Cleveland Browns are playing...

    CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Cleveland Indians added a walk-off win to a streak that has had everything. Jay Bruce hit an RBI double in the 10th inning as the Indians rallied for their 22nd straight win to extend their AL record, beating the Kansas City Royals 3-2 on Thursday night to move within four wins of matching the 1916 New York Giants for the longest streak in major league history. After blowouts, shutouts and oh-so-easy wins, the Indians went into extras for the first time to keep the longest streak in 101 years intact. Ramirez led off the 10th with...

    Cleveland police and emergency services unions have declined an invitation from the NFL's Cleveland Browns to hold an American flag for the team's season opener after some Browns players knelt for the national anthem during a preseason game. EMS union president Daniel Nemeth told Fox 8 Cleveland on Friday that the offer to participate in a pregame ceremony sounded great until a dozen Browns players refused to stand for the anthem, in support of free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

    Cleveland Whiskey in Ohio, founder and CEO Tom Lix is a firm believer that technology can accomplish in days what a barrel stashed underground would take a half-decade. Mr. Lix pours his mashes into a stainless steel vat along with chopped up pieces of barrel so that the wood can give the whiskey its traditional brown color. And in days, he emphasizes, many of Cleveland Whiskey’s products are ready for tasting and selling. Some, he says, even in 24 hours. Mr. Lix produced for me his Black Reserve, whose quality of taste is on par with Knob Creek. Its complexity...

    CLEVELAND -- Eleven Cleveland Browns players knelt in a circle during the national anthem prior to Monday's preseason game against the New York Giants. While the group knelt behind the Cleveland bench in front of the Gatorade buckets, several other players stood nearby and put their hands on a kneeling teammate's shoulder in support. Those who took a knee were tight end Seth DeValve, running backs Duke Johnson Jr. and Terrence Magee, safeties Jabrill Peppers and Calvin Pryor, cornerback Jamar Taylor, receivers Kenny Britt and Ricardo Louis, linebackers Chris Kirksey and Jamie Collins, and running back Isaiah Crowell (who was...
  • Baseball card company drops Chief Wahoo for ‘Block C’ logo

    CLEVELAND- The Cleveland Indians' gradual evolution away from the familiar Chief Wahoo mascot appears to have made its way to the baseball card industry. Under pressure to separate itself from the age-old mascot by individuals who have made a public appeal claiming it to be offensive, the team now calls the 'Block C' its primary logo. But baseball card companies, including Topps, which is one of the largest, have included the logo along with players' images for years. This year, however, the card company appears not to be airbrushing the logo from the players photographs, but it seems to be...
